Quit picking on Rick Bot; AI is still a new field.

Why not?

I don't know. Conceptually an empty list/array has no begin and no end, so I think throwing an exception is not a bad idea.

Oh, I am much more productive when I only visit here about 30 minutes from work :)

Because you have no context.  It's not directed at anyone, it does reply to anything, and it doesn't add anything.  It's just a plain statement and everyone has to guess what you are trying to get across.

It's immediately after the posts about C++, exception, and python.

Most who interested in the thread should be intelligent enough to get the point without much effort.

Nah, most would dismiss it as too little, too late.  If you wanted to make the point:

"Conceptually an empty list/array has no begin and no end, so I think throwing an exception is not a bad idea. "

You should have just said that (but replaced begin w/ beginning.)

You're wrong.  Most people who read your post think it's a non-sequitur.  Check yourself.

So you can represent all people? My goodness.

You could have just gave me a 53 and I would have shut up; instead you picked a stupid method to 'insult'.

We're trying to help you out.  Maybe your English is shit because your a stubborn ass, not because your an idiot as I had earlier assumed.

JoS is a freaking discussion board; no one knows who is 'Rick Tang'.

I'll try harder here since this is more of a community than JoS, in which many posters use their real names and put a link to their blogs/companies to achieve some personal agendas.

Stubborn ass? I am way behind Dennis, Wayne, sharkfish and muppet.
